I wrote to the company and they replied that it's copyrighted in other countries except the U.S. If this is the case, shouldn't YouTube have just blocked the video from showing anywhere but the U.S.?

I suggest you actually look up the public domain status of this film. I also recommend asking the company who is making the claim on it for valid copyright registration information for verification. If they give yo something, literally look it up to make sure it's valid.

This film is definitely PD. I looked it up and most likely Studio Canal is making life miserable for us again. Shepherd gave me a strike for 'Sundown' with Tierney and I called the US Copyright Office and asked them if he is able to claim that UK Law trumps US Copyright Law and their response was no. I have it in writing from them and forwarded to Shepherd but he is a creep and he refuses to remove the claim! He has nothing better to do with himself.

Normally you should be able to dispute without getting a strike right?

I just posted something similar here: http://archive.org/post/557645

I have this "Blocked in Some Countries" for three movies on a new account and I can't file a counter claim. I don't see how anybody in any country can legitimately claim U.S. Government films that were *never* copyrighted.

One time I had a problem with Paramount filing a claim on a PD film and they slow boated it, waiting 30 days to reply, then rejected my claim. So I counter rejected and they would have needed to file a DMCA to get the movie taken off. They never did but my account was limited to 15min movies for about 3 months. Then when they didn't file a DMCA I got the movie green lighted and all account privileges back.

Somewhere on youtube there's an email address for copyright support. It's really hard to find, but when I had the problem with Paramount, I found it and wrote them and they sent me back the email of the person to write at Paramount. But Paramount never replied. Just made the process take as long as possible.

Hello can you please email or message me somehow? I'm having an issue with a paramount copyright strike on my youtube channel and I'd like to know more.
